What is the maximum number of book page in a day that you have ever read? I read 250 pages in a day. The book was Thus Spoke Zarathustra which belongs to Nietzche. What about you? Have you ever lost yourself while reading a book?

Not sure why this matters, lol. But, unfortunetly for me, I finished Breaking Dawn, the last and largest Twilight Saga book in a day. I forget how many pages that is, but it’s a lot.

Anyway, I don’t see why it matters because, personally, when I speed read, I lose a lot of meaning. I lose quality to quanity. So, I try not to do it anymore, but I can’t always help myself. My brain gets impatient and reads a ead or reads quickly or something, lol.

@senseless, I’m right there with you, lol. I used to love Twilight, but then the Twilight craze made me realize how terrible it is.

And have you read “The Things They Carried” by Tim O’Brien? We’re reading it in school and although I usually find assigned books dreadful to read, this one is actually really great and deep and just incredible. I recommend it, though it’s also rather graphic. It’s basically a series of stories surrounding the Vietnam war, and a lot of it is hard to read emotionally. Still, an excellent read and a great insight into the darker (and lighter) sides of human nature.

Maybe 200? I think it was about Children’s Past Lives, it was interesting. I’m not a great reader to be honest, was always better with numbers.

Definitely have never read over 100 pages in a day. I have a hard time reading over 20.
I do not read fast.
I get bored of people’s writings quickly.
Most writing is redundant.
I feel like reading fiction is a waste (unless its The Hobbit or by Kurt Vonnegut)

@ijesuschrist, fiction is more often than not based on some part of reality that cannot be easily or safely expressed otherwise. People can use fictional characters to represent real people like oppressive dictators and such. It could also be a source of inspiration, just look at how real science has followed what science fiction writers only imagined.

@yukselsarac, 743. The entirety of Harry Potter and the Goblet of fire in one sitting. Plus whatever else I read that day. We were driving around alot and I was bored, so I sat and read the entire thing.

Haha, I have no idea why you ask. But anyways, I read 8-10 pages / hour for seven hours = 56-70 pages every day (I read scientific articles).

My max speed is 30-35 pages/hour for fiction or something light and easy…..and 10 pages an hour for academic and denser material

@yukselsarac, Used to be way more then I am now. But recently I’ve been practicing speed reading, when reading novels I can easy get 100 pages an hour, but for school material I’m a bit slower. Haven’t done serious school reading in awhile, (I do have some to do…) so not sure how fast read when I’m trying to learn something.

@creds, Why – do you do any methodology? You just read all day?

Probably around 80. I read Feynman’s “The Meaning of it All” cover to cover on a three-hour plane trip and started into a thich Naht Hahn book.
Because of whatever in my brain is / is not working, I read in my mind as if I were reading aloud to myself. My page counts are usually in the teens. But that was some exciting stuff (for me, at least). And what are you gonna do on a plane trip from BWI to London Canada via Detroit? Count cows?

@dubatomik, i totally agree. that series is boss. i first read all three when i was about 12 (i was a bookworm as a kid) and i just chose to reread them at age 20 for a major research paper last semester. so glad i did. the series is a masterpiece. it is really good fiction that i enjoyed as a kid and will enjoy as an adult, and not much other fiction can do that, other than harry potter and a select few others. except his dark materials is so full of meaning, unlike a lot of fiction. so good!

I’m with bryan on this one, Goblet of fire with 743 was by far the longest book that I’ve read in one day. The next closest was five something

@xyver, Unfortunately I can’t read speedy because when I try to do so, I can’t understand what I am reading. I wish I could read quickly and understand like you. How did you achieve that? Are there any suggestion for me?

@udntnome, I should buy that book immediately. Both of you finished that book in a day. I’ll try to do so, as well. I really wonder if there is an interesting thing which get that book not put down.
